Optio S1 memory card error

I am trying a new sdhc 8 gb card and get memory card error message.
Does this camera support sdhc 8 gb?

It does support SDHC cards. Try formatting the card in-camera and see if that helps.

It did not help.
Still the same message.
My old card works most of the time.

I had this trouble with a LEXAR card in the K-01. You can't format a card the camera fails to mount. What I did was format it in the K-7 then transferred it to the K-01.
